Alternative Radio

Alternative Radio, established in 1986, is a weekly one-hour public affairs program offered free to all public radio stations in the US, Canada, Europe and beyond. AR provides information, analyses and views that are frequently ignored or distorted in other media.

Our program is carried by over 125 radio stations and heard by millions of listeners. It is produced by David Barsamian in Boulder, Colorado.

Alternative Radio is sustained by donations and by your purchases of season subscriptions, recordings and transcripts. You can make a donation, including a recurring amount charged to your credit card each month, from our donations page.

Because Alternative Radio is a syndicated program, we don't have the permissions from them to post their audio files or transcripts. If you go to the Alternative Radio website, you can download their interviews and lectures for a very low price, and help support their work.

Journalist John Ross on Revolutionary Mexico

John Ross – Revolutionary Mexico (lecture)

With a population of more than 110 million, Mexico is the most populous Spanish-speaking country in the world. For many, particularly in the U.S. and Canada, it is a vacation getaway with beaches at Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Vallarta and “una cerveza mas, por favor.” Throw in a pyramid or two and that’s about it. The complex realities of the country escape most visitors. Mexico has a rich history of revolution and resistance to tyranny. But much of the news today is about gun battles and drug cartels. What are the prospects for revolutionary change?
